Honey.

You're awake.

You're finally awake.

It's so good to see those eyes.

Where am I?

You're at home.

Where?

You've been unconscious.

From the impact.

What happened?

Traumatic head injury...

from where you

hit the windshield.

The doctor says...

you might suffer

from memory loss.

Temporary, they hope.

Who are you?

Honey...

I'm your wife.

And I'm gonna

make you all better.

Did you know the noodle

is not an Italian discovery?

In spite of its popularity

in the West,

chicken noodle soup was actually

first created by the Chinese.

The doctor says we need to keep

your brain as rested as possible.

Which means not a lot of light.

Not a lot to look at.

It was a bad accident.

I don't remember.

How did it happen?

You made a mistake, honey.

We have plenty of time

to answer questions.

Now you need your rest.

Honey, you shouldn't

be out of bed.

You need to take it easy.

Hmm.

Reddecker.

All right,

well, what's your story?

All right, well,

people go missing all the time.

If I don't find him dead,

I'll find him in the next small town...

complaining about

this small town.

What else you got?

A ransom note.

All right.

Well, send it over.

I don't give a damn

what you write.

Let me tell you what I'll do.

I'll take clips from your article

and I'll put it in my scrapbook.

It's about time, sleepyhead.

I was starting to get worried I'd

never see those beautiful eyes again.

How long was I asleep?

Two days.

Jesus.

The doctor says it's natural for a brain

in your state to get that much rest.

Doctor?

Mm-hmm.

I heard...

I heard voices and...

I saw figures in my sleep.

It was the doctor?

Mmm. See?

Getting better already.

I'm gonna start cooking dinner.

You shouldn't be

out of bed, honey.

My foot...

doesn't feel broken.

You're taking

a lot of pain medication.

You're not gonna be

feeling much of anything.

I feel lost.

Everything is new to me.

Like the cats.

I keep hearing cats.

I don't remember

ever having cats.

Well, we do.

Since you made it

all the way down here,

do you want to eat

like a couple?

The way we used to?

Yeah.

Good, because

I made your favorite.

My favorite?

I'm sorry.

Sometimes I forget you forget.

Pot roast.

You love my pot roast.

When did we...

move in here?

Not long before the accident.

So you had to

go through all this?

You shouldn't have to

take care of me.

I don't have to.

I want to.

You're my husband.

Now let's eat.

Come on, babies.

Elephants are dying

of coronaries.

Excuse me?

In the jungle.

They're dying of stress about their

dwindling food and water supply.

It's the stress

that really kills them.

Do you remember?

No.

You don't remember

about the elephants?

I don't... I don't remember.

What do you remember?

I don't remember

where I grew up.

You don't remember

our senior bowl?

Kissing me by the creek?

You don't remember?

I want to.

I'm sorry.

Did you know

the first can opener,

it wasn't even invented...

until 50 years after the first

tin can was even produced.

Wow.

I've missed you.

Have we been...

happy?

You have to ask?

I think I just reminded you.

Do you want me

to remind you again?

How did we first meet?

Love at first sight.

Where did we go

on our honeymoon?

Up north.

Where up north?

I wish the accident

hadn't messed with your brain.

How did it happen?

Why weren't you hurt?

I was thrown from the car.

Let's not talk about it

just yet, honey.

It will only upset you.

I just want to

think happy thoughts.

There was a wreck on Highway 83.

No victims were found,

but blood samples were taken.

Did you run plates?

Yes, sir.

The car hasn't been registered since the

'60s. It's a powder-blue Thunderbird.

How many victims?

We don't know for sure yet.

Judging from the belongings in the car,

two adults and a young girl.

What was the weather?

Fair.

So no rain.

No rain, sir.

Okay.

All right.

Should I, um... Give me an address?

Yes.

- Right now?

- Now would be good.

Okay. Thank you, sir.

Mm-hmm.

Dad.

Dad.

What are you doing, honey?

I was looking for you.

Mmm.

You shouldn't be out of bed.

Please.

I worry about you so much.

Especially since the accident.

You're right.

I'm sorry.

Why don't you

go upstairs and undress?

I'll be up in a minute

to draw your bath.

No. It's okay.

I can do it myself.

This is a marriage.

We help each other.

Okay, well, I'll be

waiting upstairs.

Yes, isn't it?

Mmm.

There's a part

of my nightmare...

that I can't shake.

Keeps coming back.

There's...

a girl,

calling "Dad."

Ever notice

that battery sizes...

come in "A," "C" and "D"?

Why not "B," you ask?

B-size batteries never caught on in products made

for consumers, so stores stopped carrying them.

You can find them

in Europe though,

where they're used

to power bicycle lamps.

Tell me something

about yourself.

I want to get to

know you... again.

Do you have other family?

Do I?

I want to get to know you.

The woman that I love.

Okay?

I hate talking about my past.

You knew that once.

I just want to focus

on our future.

This is my film room.

It's where I make movies.

I don't remember.

I can't remember any of this.

I don't know what's yours,

what's mine,

where I can go...

and where I can't.

I forget sometimes too.

That's okay.

That's why I have this room.

It's full of memories.

To help me remember.

I know this has

been hard for you.

Will you help me remember?

I will.

What's in that room?

It's just a room.

Another bedroom?

Just a room.

I thought I saw somebody

in there.

What do you mean?

Behind the door.

I thought I saw somebody.

I was just curious.

You know what they say

about curiosity.

I'm just trying to get my

bearings straight. I know, honey.

I know.

I'm gonna go to the store and stop by work.

I have to go check on my patients.

Will you be okay with that?

Yeah.

What's wrong, honey?

I've been in the basement.

I saw him.

I saw what you did.

I told you to

never go down there.

I've never kept my first

husband a secret from you.

Who are you?

I'm the woman who loves you,

who takes care of you,

who feeds you,

who bathes you...

and makes love to you.

I'm your wife.

You seem

a little depressed lately.

Honey, do you know anything

about electroconvulsive therapy?

Also commonly referred to

as shock therapy.

Dates back to the 16th century

in Eastern Europe,

but really gained popularity in

the United States in the 1930s.

Although the therapy

is controversial,

it is still used today in this

country and around the world,

primarily to treat

severe depression.

I think this will help you, honey.

I really do.

Oh, no, no, no, no, no.

See?

That wasn't so bad, now, was it?

Hmm?

No. No.

Did you know Conway Twitty

had 55 number-one hits? Hmm?

That's more than Elvis Presley.

Do you understand

how important family is?

Strong families are the

backbone to this society.

There's nothing

more beautiful...

than the foundation

of a husband and wife,
